When I heard yesterday that Arsenal had made a bid for the USA international keeper Matt Turner as a potential backup to Aaron Ramsdale if Bernd Leno leaves this month, I decided to do a bit of research on the 27 year old.
He has been at New England Revolution for 5 years and has gone from strength to strength, and after being called up USA national side he quickly made himself indispensable and is now everpresent between the sticks. Turner has also made no secret of his wish to play in Europe.
He was voted the MLS Keeper of the year as well, and I heard today that he has an amazing record of saving 9 out of the 20 penalties he has faced. He uses his full 6ft 3 inches to cover his line brilliantly.
If anything I would say he looks too good to be a backup, but he would be great competition to keep Ramsdale on his toes.
Anyway, have a look at this video and see what you think of his reflexes…
